department and fbi and others have that video. the video in california made by individual out there for a period of time also clearly had no direct effect on this attack. it was september 11, the 11th anniversary of the greatest terrorist attack in u.s. history in new york, pennsylvania, and at the pentagon. it was that anniversary that caused an organization aligned with al qaeda to attack and kill our personnel. i deeply appreciate secretary clinton's efforts to cooperate with this investigation. she stepped in and instructed her people to cooperate and they have. additionally, if i have had conversations directly with the secretary and i believe our service together since 2001 in the u.s. congress plays no small part in her recognition of the role we serve on both sides of the dome. today, however, this hearing has been called for the express purpose of examining security failures that led to the benghazi tragedy. safe-haven within the compound, which some state department officials seemed to think could protect the benghazi compound inhabitants, did not work. in retrospect
commanders, with dhs, fbi and other agencies in government. we need to see an attack coming in order to defend against that attack. we are looking at ways to strengthen cipher command as well. we must ensure that it has the resources, the authority, the capability required to perform this mission. it must also be able to react quickly to events unfolding in cyberspace and fully integrate cyber into all of the department also plans and activities. finally, the third area is to build stronger partnership. as i have made clear, securing cyberspace is not the sole response ability of the united states military or even the sole responsibility of the united states government. the private-sector, government, military, our allies all share the same local infrastructure. we all share a deep responsibility to protect it. we are deepening cooperation with our closest allies with the goal of sharing that information, that a mighty cheer capabilities, and determining malicious activities -- maximizing sheered capabilities and determining militias activities. we have made cyber a major topic of di
even noticed right up to our 2011 story declaring rape is rape in which we revealed the f.b.i.'s 80-year-old definition of rape under counted rapes in this country by hundreds of thousands every year. that was part of a larger feminist campaign and kicked off a fire storm resulting in 140,000 e-mails and letters to the f.b.i. and attorney general demanding the definition be changed. it was, we succeeded. mrs. mrs. mrs. has always been ahead of the main stream news when it comes to coverage of women and girls. "ms." first sounded the alarm about the war on women eight years ago. behind me you'll recognize the cover of "ms.," wonder woman fighting for peace and justice. for our 40th anniversary we wanted to feature this iconic super hero with women marching to stop the attacks of women's rights, vote as if your life depends on it. wonder woman has been an enduring symbol of women's power and we could find no better way to urge women to use their power, the power of their vote to stand up for themselves and their rights in the coming elections. you're going to hear more about some of t

tragedy. on the specifics, there is an investigation under way by the fbi and the state department has launched what it calls an official accountability review board. we do not have the full picture of what actually happened, but there is no question that this is a major tragedy. it is the first time in more than two decades that the u.s. has lost an investor in a situation like this. has lost an ambassador in a situation like this. host: susan glasser is editor in chief at "foreign policy magazine. indiana. chris. independent line. caller: jobs are going to be the most important thing in the election, but foreign policy will be important. as far as governor romney not pointing of the specificity of what he would do differently, i disagree. in his speech he pointed out a lot of things that he would do differently. he strongly backs israel. more money for the military. opposing various things. it was a vast contrast to the president. as far as foreign policy concerns respecting the election, you know, the president's policies have not seemed to have worked in the middle east. they have
facilities geared and we need to work hard to make sure those facilities are protected. >> the fbi shows up at a crime scene. is it too late to gain anything relevant from the site? >> i think it will be difficult. the compound was set on fire. any evidence will likely be destroyed. getting witness statements will be difficult. public and make changes to how we are defending these facilities. but it is important that they are there. i think we will learn some things. we will probably never get all the answers but we want or will need surrounding this case. host: there was a congressional hearing on what happened. one of the big topics was the level of security there. what did you learn from the hearing, and what is a concern for you as far as the level of security that was guest::it is hard to say. it would not have mattered if there's one, five or 10 security officers there. the level of suspicion of these attacks will have far exceeded what we normally would put into a compound such as that. that is how we all these attacks were. every day, to under 75 facilities worldwide. try to balance
cybersecurity. the f.b.i. also has a key part to play in investigating and preventing cyberattacks. and our intelligence agencies, of course, are focused on this potential threat as well. the state department is trying to forge international consensus on the roles and responsibilities of nations to help secure cyberspace. the department of defense also has a role. it is a supporting role but it is an essential role. and tonight i want to explain what that means. but first let me make clear what it does not mean. it does not mean that the department of defense will monitor citizens personal computers. we're not interested in personal communication or in e-mails or in providing the day-to-day security in private and commercial networks. that is not our goal, that is not our job that is not our mission. our mission is to defend the nation. we defend, we deter and if called upon, we take decisive action to protect our citizens. in the past we have done so through operations on land and at sea, in the skies and in space. in this century, the united states military must help defend the nation in
